Today we are excited to announce that Wired Productions is joining up as one of the founding partners of Safe In our World's #LevelUpMentalHealth initiative.
Safe In Our world has already managed to make huge strides towards its mission, and Wired has been proud to be a part of that goal:
To create and foster worldwide mental health awareness within the video game industry; to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health and to make it a natural topic of discussion.
And right now, we take it one step further, and start putting that support into actionable changes that cause positive outcomes.
What is is #LevelUpMentalHealth? We have a handy video here to explain!
Safe In Our World is challenging companies within the video games industry to come together and commit to industry wide change via the following steps :
1. Over the next 12 months, commit to taking the first steps to roll out a mental health support system within your company.
2. Join Safe In Our World as a partner and commit to supporting Mental Health within the industry.
3. Help us ensure our teams and players know where support can be found, through sharing messaging and signposting to support.
Our own managing director - Leo Zullo had this to say about the new initiative:
"We’re pleased to see so much support for our cause from the industry, but now it’s time to turn that support into action. The Level Up Mental Health campaign will form a major part of our activities now and in the future and as an industry, we’ll drive forward from that starting point, together"
We are beyond proud to be associated with a positive force for change within the industry, and remain committed to supporting the fantastic work of Safe In Our World - and create fantastic worlds for players to live in, along with the support networks needed for industry workers and players alike to know they are not alone.
